The National Railroad Museum relies on the hard work and dedication of its volunteers.
Volunteering is an opportunity to use and cultivate new skills, connect with your community, and spend time at the museum.
We have volunteer roles for a wide age and interest range, including:
Taking a train ride is a large part of the museum experience. Trained volunteers serve as conductors and engineers for these excursions. Would you like to run the train? We provided an extensive training program for qualified volunteers.
Special events attract large numbers of patrons to the museum. Additional help is always needed for craft activities, game attendants, gift shop assistance, and more. This is a great way for a large group to volunteer.
The Museum offers dynamic educational programs for all ages. We need help preparing and processing these programs and supervising the Children’s Discovery Depot.
The Museum’s collection is vast and always growing. Volunteers assist the Curator with cataloging and filing, answering research questions, and assisting on special projects.
Do you have experience with restoration, carpentry, or machinery? The Restoration Shop at the museum works year round restoring and preserving historic train cards and could use your help.
